Nissan Pathfinder ST-L 2017 review: snapshot

EXPERT RATING
7.5
The ST-L model is middle child in the Pathfinder family, sitting above the entry-level ST but below the top-spec Ti.

The ST-L model is middle child in the Pathfinder family, sitting above the entry-level ST but below the top-spec Ti. It's available as a V6-powered front-wheel drive ($53,690), or with the same engine powering all four wheels ($57,690), and finally as a hybrid-powered four-wheel drive. 

Springing for the ST-L over the ST earns you a panoramic sunroof, fog lights, heated wing mirrors, and sat-nav, and your seats are now leather accented and heated in the front. You get a better stereo, too; a 13-speaker Bose system. Your eight-inch touchscreen now has a pinch-to-zoom function, but Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are not available.

That 3.5-litre V6 will push out 202kW/340Nm, but you can also opt for an electric motor-equipped four cylinder hybrid good for a combined 188kW/330Nm. Like the rest of the Pathfinder range, a continuously variable (automatic) transmission is standard.

You'll also find a surround-view reversing camera, rear parking sensors and the same six airbags (twin front, side and curtain) as the ST, but you'll add active cruise control, forward collision warning with AEB and rear cross-traffic alert to your safety arsenal. The entire Pathfinder range was awarded the maximum five-star ANCAP safety rating when tested following its 2013 launch.
